2021.10.23 19:51 No-Surprise2381 Adam and Eve perspective from LDS faith view
I have been reading/listening to your book 12 Rules for Life, and have been really enjoying it. I really like what you shared about Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. It was interesting to hear what you shared about them and to learn more about that event as it is seen by other faiths. I think one could easily spend a life time studying just that story and all the significant details that are weaved through out it. It's obvious that you did a lot of research on the subject and I thought you might be interested in learning a little about what my faith teaches about the subject as well. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. (aka Mormon) We use the Bible, The Book of Mormon, Doctrine & Covenants, and The Pearl of Great Price in our Scripture study. I just wanted to share some of what we learn in The Book of Mormon about Adam and Eve and the Garden.
The Book of Mormon if you didn't already see the play is a book of scripture written by prophets of old from the ancient Americas. Mormon is actually the name of the prophet that compiled all the writings of these prophets into one book. Translated later by the modern day prophet Joseph Smith in the year 1830, and that is a very abbreviated explanation of how we have it today.
Moving on though one of the prophets in The Book of Mormon named Alma teaches the following in The Book of Alma and it reminded me of what you where speaking to concerning your second rule. "Treat yourself like someone you are responsible for helping."
(You can download the free Book of Mormon app if you want to read the whole chapter.)
Alma 12: 21-26
21 What does the scripture mean, which saith that God placed cherubim and a flaming sword on the east of the garden of Eden, lest our first parents should enter and partake of the fruit of the tree of life, and live forever? And thus we see that there was no possible chance that they should live forever.
22 Now Alma said unto him: This is the thing which I was about to explain. Now we see that Adam did fall by the partaking of the forbidden fruit, according to the word of God; and thus we see, that by his fall, all mankind became a lost and fallen people.
23 And now behold, I say unto you that if it had been possible for Adam to have partaken of the fruit of the tree of life at that time, there would have been no death, and the word would have been void, making God a liar, for he said: If thou eat thou shalt surely die.
24 And we see that death comes upon mankind, yea, the death which has been spoken of by Amulek, which is the temporal death; nevertheless there was a space granted unto man in which he might repent; therefore this life became a probationary state; a time to prepare to meet God; a time to prepare for that endless state which has been spoken of by us, which is after the resurrection of the dead.
25 Now, if it had not been for the plan of redemption, which was laid from the foundation of the world, there could have been no resurrection of the dead; but there was a plan of redemption laid, which shall bring to pass the resurrection of the dead, of which has been spoken.
26 And now behold, if it were possible that our first parents could have gone forth and partaken of the tree of life they would have been forever miserable, having no preparatory state; and thus the plan of redemption would have been frustrated, and the word of God would have been void, taking none effect.
For me this means that God knowing if His children partook of the Tree of Life in their sinful state after partaking of the tree of good and evil would have been condemned to a horrible eternal end and out of love for his children is why the Tree of Life was immediately guarded or blocked off you could say until His plan of redemption could be fulfilled.
Side note I would also read 2 Nephi Chapter 2 in The Book of Mormon where the prophet Lehi also talks about the state in which Adam and Eve were in at that time. It's also one of my favorite chapters.
I'm sharing this with you because I figured why not share it. If it can shed more truth and knowledge on the subject, or start a discussion that can help lead to greater understanding I see it as a win either way you look at it, and if anything else you'll have an understanding of how your followers that are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (which are many) see and understand this event in the scriptures. There are many other truths about Adam and Eve like this found in The Book of Mormon, not going to mention them now though as I was trying to keep this brief.
I would be interested to know what you think about this perspective though as recorded in The Book of Mormon.

I've cleaned a good bunch 5 or 6 times now and the water is still black. Is this normal? Should I just accept it as a little of color loss and move on? It's driving me crazy. Sorry if this come out as a noob question but I'm new to living alone without a washing machine.

2021.10.23 19:51 Equi_Pet Wrangler was a special cat, I know everyone says that, but he didn't belong to us.
Our neighbors had a cat named Wrangler. He used to come and visit us every day. My daughter used to love reading stories to him. I have pictures of the two of them sitting on our porch, he seems to be truly listening. One day he came over and I noticed a horrible wound on his backside. He obviously had been in a fight. I went to my neighbors who owned him and asked if they knew about the wound. They affirmed they knew but felt a Vet visit wasn't needed, "he's an outdoor cat, shit happens". I was stunned, I asked for permission to take him myself, they said "it's your money". He went on major medications and I had to clean and pack his wound daily. He was incredible through the whole process. In doing bloodwork it was discovered he had feline aids. I was devastated. This meant his recovery would have to take place in our garage away from my other cat that I had inside my home. Our neighbors stopped caring for him completely, so after he fully recovered he became our kitty. It kills me that I had to keep him outdoors, I knew the dangers that awaited him. My daughter insisted that we get him a collar and tag, it also had a bell. He seemed happy to be ours. We could hear his collar ring every time he came to be fed. Aids was horrible, he could never seem to get enough to eat.
One morning we did not hear his bell. My daughter called for him. Once in awhile he would behave this way. He was a cat after all. My daughter asked if she could go look for him. I agreed and continued to make breakfast. Suddenly I heard my daughter screaming, she ran into our home clutching me, sobbing. I asked "what's wrong honey, what's wrong?" Through sobs, she said it was Wrangler, a coyote got him and he was (what was left of him) on our neighbors lawn. I grabbed a blanket and went to him. Almost all of him was there all be it in pieces. Obviously the coyotes could tell he was ill. I scooped him up and we buried him under his favorite tree in our yard.
For weeks after, we would hear his bell ring outside our door. We would always check, but there was never anything there. We knew it was him, our Wrangler, letting us know he was ok.

2021.10.23 19:51 ThrowENFPINTJ Ada yang punya trik dalam membantu finansial adik tukang bohong?
ThrowRA karna just because aja. Anyway gw udah support adik gw (cowok) dari tahun 2018 semenjak dia lulus SMA. Supportnya ga cuma duit kuliah tapi juga duit ngekos dan jajan dikit. Sebenarnya dia bisa tinggal di rumah tapi gontokan mulu ama bokap, jadi gw suruh koslah (cause I thought hes responsible enough to do that). Gw dulu support doi dengan catatan sebulan sekali minimal harus ke rumah dan ngirimin gw KRS nya. Semester pertama ga dikirim, gw juga males ngecek.
Eh ternyata setahun tahun setelahnya dia laporan depressed. Trus habis itu udah mulai ga sopan sama gw (calling me names tapi ga parah). Gw Marah, tapi dia jelasin ke laki gw, kalau dia banyak masalah sampe self harm. Masalahnya termasuk pinjol dan jadi rent bf dan ga percaya Tuhan. Yaudah gw maapin dgn catatan ga gitu lagi.
Eh tahun 2020 laporan ga suka ama kuliahnya. Yaudah gw suruh ganti kampus. Gw udah tanya pinjolnya udah beres apa belum, katanya udah beres.lega lah ya, etapi gw dapat laporan abis itu doi abusive ke pacarnya sampe doxxing di social media. Marah gw kan, udah gw suruh ke psikolog buat anger issue nya Dia. Ga pergi.
Gw minta data nilai kuliah, nilai nya jeblok tapi katanya belum ada yang masuk. Gw iyain aja karna gw sibuk. Puncaknya tahun 2021, ortu gw diteror pinjolnya dia, motor udah dia jual buat bayar pinjol, gw udah "ngelunasin" eh tapi abis itu doi marah ke gw, karna gw nyindir soal dia ke orang tua. Lol. Gw marah balik tapi tetep gw kasih duit kuliah dengan catatan harus pindah ke rumah ortu lagi.
Duitnya diambil tapi ga bayar kuliah, ga tinggal di rumah ortu sampe ada masalah besar di rumah terus dia balik dan minta maaf ke gw tapi datangnya kaya gembel kata bokap gw. I couldnt trust him anymore, tapi dia punya potensial (sering menang lomba gitu). Rasanya pen nyewa detektif biar tahu doi sebenarnya kaya gimana hidupnya.
SORRY FOR MY RANT

2021.10.23 19:51 lanylover Won 10k! How would spend it on marketing for our local business?
We have been awarded 10k for coming up with a new business idea during the pandemic.
Our startup is a local delivery service for healthy meals. We deliver in a city with 200.000 inhabitants during lunch time. We are mainly targeting companies but also get orders from individuals.
Thus far we have gotten great response, good reviews and mostly happy customers (4.8 stars and some even think we are the best delivery service in the city!).
How ever we only get like 10 orders a day, which is quiet low. I think we have the potential to possibly do 3-4x as much.
The plan is to spend the 10k on marketing. For now we went with flyers and FB/IG but even 3k last month didn’t really move the needle. So maybe we should focus on offline marketing like placing spots on the local radio?
Maybe some of you have already been where we are at right now and can point us in the right direction :)
How would you spend the 10k on marketing?
